|Suka||This is why I am so attracted to and training in PSA. Different scenarios and different distractions in every trial, forcing absolute obedience to the handler and enforcing a handler dog relationship that must work as a team in ever-changing situations. I had never been attracted to bitework until I saw my first PSA trial.|

|Baillif||People with the eye for it can tell a bad ass dog is a bad ass dog watching a bad ass dog do pretty much anything because they do it like a bad ass dog. For everyone else there is the scoreboard. Doesn't tell the whole story of course but it is as good a bench mark as any. The training required to squeeze the precision, accuracy, and intensity out of them to be competitive at the highest levels of that sport do a pretty good job filtering the wheat from the chaff in and of itself.|

|Packen||Totally useless and make IPO/Schh so easy even high school kids can do it. So no point in working to achieve something so easy and watered down as it is even easier to just breed whatever After all it is a free country.|

Patterns are not for me . I can't do them .
so what is the usefulness of the sport?
doesn't seem to say anything about intelligence of the dog . If an incompetent handler has a dog that dog won't display his genetics to the best - how , then are the best dogs chosen for breeding . Or are they?

Well said Cliff.
I compete in IPO, I train the dog, then the behavior. Never do patterns, never have difficulty with transitions. I do get high in trial.
I find not doing pattern training increases engagement and attention on me.
That being said will be working on IPO2 and 3 this summer will see how this approach works.
